The 600 series had rubber skin. We spotted them easy, but these are new. They look human - sweat, bad breath, Hulk Hogan in front of an American flag avatars. Very hard to spot. I had to wait till he said sorry before I could zero him.

expo70 has told me multiple times that growing up they were explicitly taught to hide their shameful northern accent, especially when talking to americans. which is extra funny because americans literally cannot loving tell the difference.

i apparently have an excellent ear for accents and this is 100% not true. i won't shame anyone for an accent of course, but i can absolutely distinguish them

this is what western canadians think but they screw up all the time even if they have a passable sorry. there are other words and other tells, but its one of those things where you know it when you hear it.
